Renewed: Wilfred

2013-10-03_1124Dog-gone US-adapted comedy Wilfred has been renewed for a fourth series, but will shift from FX to the younger-skewing cable network FXX.

But it will also be the final season.

It’s still a remarkable achievement for the bong-smoking mutt who began life as a Tropfest short before two seasons on SBS.

Wilfred already holds the record as an Australian scripted series with the most seasons as a US adaptation. FX has already churned out more episodes than the SBS original.

On FXX it will have 10 new eps, joining other shows such as It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Legit and  The League.

Season two averaged 1.16 million total viewers, while season three ended with an average of 580,000 total viewers.

Australian producers  Joe Connor and Ken Connor from Renegade remain as producers while star Jason Gann, Adam Zwar and Tony Rogers are credited as co-creators.

Wilfred is currently screening in Australia Sunday nights on ELEVEN.

    I am surprised thsi lasted thsi long. Usually US adaptations of australian shows do not do well, example Kath and Kim. So considering Wilfred is a comedy it has done very well.
